Year of the snake

The YEar of the snake

by M.J. Trow & Maryann Coleman

Sometimes, a snake is just a snake. And sometimes…

First-century Rome. Senator Gaius Lucius Nerva is taken ill at a dinner party and dies a few days later. His heartbroken wife, Flavia, is told it was a natural death. Calidus, Nerva’s recently freed slave, suspects otherwise.

Calidus’ quest is by no means easy or safe as he encounters the darkest and most dangerous people in Rome. 

This racy historical whodunnit brings to life the sights, smells and sounds of ancient Rome, with sharp humour and a Christie-style finale to boot.
